The piece of wood I got is Old Growth Redwood which is the Holy Grail of reclaimed wood. This particular piece is from a vat that was pulled apart and the wood is now saved from the dump.
First thing I did was jointed one edge and one side. Then ran it through the thickness planer to get it into shape to be re-sawn. Those holes are from termites. Unenforceable consequence of old wood.
Using the big bandsaw to cut a slice (re-saw) so I can have more wood later and not have it go to dust.
Cutting the outline
Sanded and ready for cheater coat
